Director of Special Media Projects and Operations and New Media, Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Council, Femi Fani-Kayode, has commended the Supreme Court for its verdict on the old naira.
Punch Metro on Wednesday reported that the Supreme Court temporarily suspended the move by the Federal Government through the Central Bank of Nigeria to ban the use of the old naira notes from February 10, 2023.
Reacting to this through his official Twitter account, Fani-Kayode commended the supreme court for the verdict.
According to him, the decision will ease the sufferings of Nigerians as it would allow them to use both the new and old naira.
“The Supreme Court has restrained the FG & CBN & suspended the deadline of 10th February for the use of old naira notes. Nigerians can now continue to use the old naira notes together with the new until the legality of the policy is finally determined by the Supreme Court.
“For this we thank firstly the Supreme Court who have not only displayed remarkable insight and sensitivity in this matter and courageously risen to the occassion but who have also proved that the courts really are the last hope of the common man when faced with the tyranny of abusive & cruel policies & insane officials.
“We must also thank my three dearest friends & brothers, men of courage & conviction all, who took the FG to court.They are, Gov. Yahaya Bello of Kogi, Gov. Bello Matawalle of Zamfara & Gov. Nasir El Rufai of Kaduna.
“History and posterity will reward all 3 of you for saving us from the most complex & greatest evil & the darkest conspiracy that has ever been hatched against democracy & foisted on our people by a tiny group of evil technocrats & saboteurs working for a greater power.
“At least now we have a chance to change the narrative & take away the immense suffering that has been imposed on our people over the last few days.
“At least now there is a distinct possibility that this catastrophic scorched earth policy which seeks to inflict pain on our people, destroy our future as a nation and scuttle democracy in our country may be declared totally illegal by the Supreme Court and cancelled,” he said.
